The hearing recording is here:
The timer shows elapsed time for our matter, with a few minutes of preliminaries thrown in. Other matters, recesses, etc, are not included.
This LTB merits hearing used up 1 hour, 10 minutes of hearing time.
So far, this disagreement with our landlord had used up 4 hours 40 minutes of hearing time at the LTB, in 6 hearings, one by telephone, five in person (counting the Case Management Hearing and mediation session of May 19, 2017 as hearings). It has also used up 6 hours and 20 minutes of a mediator’s time. It has resulted in three responses by HPS to a complaint (one by the tenants). I’ll keep a running tally.
There was a lot of skulduggery by Yahkni in this hearing. I’ll update this post with details at a later date.
John was his usual self before a hearing; he spit at me once in the hallway leading into the hearing room, and threw garbage at me twice, once in the hallway and once in the hearing room. There is virtually no security presence in the LTB and John is quite comfortable acting like a douchebag there. There’s nothing stopping him.
John also commits provable perjury in this hearing, multiple times. By perjury, I mean deliberate misrepresentation of fact intended to mislead the member. He also mixes incidents from different dates into one story, equivocates, and does his best to create confusion. He also does his best to paint us as “professional tenants”.
One of our witnesses was unable to attend. Her statement is here (Doc 128) :
The end result of the hearing was an interim order (Doc 155) for disclosure to Yakhni. She already had the videos referenced in the hearing, despite her denial.
NTS: Post pic of John’s fingers and explain the story behind that.
